Clifton Boulevard to get upgraded bus service and 30 curbside stations

My old neighborhood is getting a bus-line face lift.  Makes me (almost) want to move back and get a job downtown again. Ah, the days walking to Clifton dinner and having brunch with friends.

Sixty-foot long articulated buses, similar to those on the Euclid Avenue HealthLine, are expected to be on the street this fall. RTA will spend $700,000 in federal stimulus money to plan and design a four-mile line extending from the West Shoreway in Cleveland to the Lakewood/Rocky River border. The project, which would include 30 new curbside stations and dedicated bus lanes during rush hours, is expected to cost $14 million. Those funds have yet to be acquired but officials are hoping to seek more federal dollars for the project, said Joe Calabrese, general manager of the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority.

Lakewood grew in the 1900s because of its streetcar system, with lines on Detroit Avenue, Clifton Boulevard and Madison Avenue, according to a history of the city by the Lakewood Heritage Advisory Board.
